Default Another stubby antenna install 03 QC

Got my 8" stubby installed today. Took 5 mins. Ordered it from ebay for $13 shipped. It looks to be compatible with many vehicles as it came with different risers and threaded inserts.

I dont use radio much so I havent tested how much signal (if any) I've lost. I think it looks awesome and thats the primary reason I did the mod. I just cant bring myself to removing the antenna completely for some reason.

Before:

The angle makes it look the antenna is 5 feet tall, the next pic is a better shot.


The two side by side.


and installed

I just put the same thing on my truck monday! I got mine from stubbyantenna.com. Those the bosch icon wiper blades? I have the same thing on my truck lol From what I can see in the pics, our trucks could pass for twins minus the pinstripe. My reception did suffer a little, but I listen to my ipod more than the radio.

I tested my reception today and it suffered noticably and that was in Midtown Manhattan. Not a big deal for me.

I hate the pinstripe, once the weather gets nice i'm gonna set a weekend aside to remive the pinstripe, debadge, and fully detail. The wipers are actually duralast brand, they look like the icons and i perform great. I'd rather pay 16.99 than 23.99 each for wipers. Before the beam wipers became so common i just bought the cheapest Anco blades and replaced them every 3 times a year.
